What was found by SuperAntiSpyware?
I'll tell you once again: it found nothing!
I hadn't got any clean reinstall yet...
And Enterprise activated me the computer salesman from where I bought this PC; However after 180 days got a message that is not registered and I found on my PC... an 'Activator'! This program activates windows 7 without buying it... :|

ydylan: It doesn't exist anywhere else... and I don't visit unknown sites, by the way, or 'green-flagged' sites by Avast.

Time to check this installation before proceeding with further troubleshooting:

1. Download and save this tool to your desktop:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

2. Run the tool, and then click 'Copy' - ignore any errors if they appear

3. Use CTRL+V to paste the unedited results of the validation tool here in your next reply

I tell you now: You are using criminal methods to activate Win7.

No shop can legally sell you Windows 7 without a COA sticker attached showing its authenticity. If a shop sold you Enterprise version it was knowingly illegal and they should be reported to MS Customer Service. If you can provide documentation to them of this they might reward you with a free copy for cooperating in their investigation.

Who used the illegal methods is the salesman, not ME! Golden: I'm going right now to do that...
Found a Windows Vista COA sticker attached to my system (here I smell a problem)

Then you need to buy a copy of Win7.

We cannot help you further as long as an illegal crack was used on a version of the software you shouldn't have had anyway - Enterprise is volume licensed for business.

Golden: That program deleted itself after download. Tried to download but still deletes itself.

Mmmm, I've never seen that happen before.......I suspect that the current installation is deeply cracked to the point it avoids attempts at checking its authenticity.

I would contact Microsoft as suggested - they have been known to reward persons with a free copy of Windows if you report counterfeits.

You will need to buy and install a genuine copy of Windows before we can offer any help.

Went to rename a song in my Music Folder;now every song has same title
I'm really stumped on this one. Last week I went to rename one song in my Windows 7 Music Library folder. I clicked 'rename' and put the cursor inside the blue highlighted name field. When I clicked to start typing the new title, all 80 songs were renamed to the same title. When that happened...

I was trying to transfer some songs for my mother onto her phone. I usually just drag it directly from my iTunes to whatever folder I decide to put it into in the phone's SD card, but since her phone wasn't letting me do this, I simply dragged the songs to my desktop and then onto her phone....
